Automatic Elek-City using Internet of Things
The new era of Internet of Things (IOT) which was referred to uniquely identify objects and represent it in an “internet like” structure has played major role in our daily life in terms of intelligence and automation in convenient ways. By creating connectivity, IoT, as intelligent system, connect things like universal global neural network, as a result of this process, there are huge volume of data that are being generated which need management and control. As the technology is advancing, the IoT’s automation management system is applied in many basic infrastructures such as electricity, gas, and water management systems in order to make it more convenient for individual and organizations. Therefore, the system can overcome the issues of human error and power loss in terms of controlling and management. In addition, it can also solve the manual control and a unit recording operation without human error. To achieve this sophisticated system, the communication and networking are the major role to track all kind of connectivity among the individual devices. The challenge is to build a network system with robust, at the same time low power consumption as well as inexpensive. The main objective of our proposed system is to implement and develop a low-cost Wi-Fi-based single phase digital energy meter with IoT concepts. By using low cost ESP8266 Wi-Fi module, the system can provide data communication between digital energy meters and web server gateway, so that it can monitor the energy management system. By using this system, the billing of the power users can be based on actual consumption rather than estimate based on the previous consumption. Our country is recognized in the world as the pioneers in providing meters with “Tamper Detection” capability but Energy meter reading is a monotonous and an expensive task
